    ✒WHY DO YOU THINK THAT MUSCLE CELLS HAVE MORE MITOCHONDRIA THAN ANY OTHER CELLS OF THE BODY?

    Muscles require a large amount of energy to function. This is provided primarily by mitochondria in cells that consume a lot of energy. We therefore find more of these powerhouses of the cell in muscle cells than in other cell types with a lower metabolic rate.

    Muscle cells are assiciated with a large number of mitochondria as they require more ATP (energy) to function than other cells. They need this because of their frequent contraction and relaxation, which requires more ATP than average cells.
